    Does anyone have one of the nightforce scopes with the velocity reticle and how has it worked out as far as the lines with your gun. My NF 5.5 x 22 np r-1 will not hold point of inpact ,I thought something was wrong the other day when I had high shots (4 to 6 inches) at several yardages , so today I was shooting at 600 yds shot two shots 4 inches high , clicked down 2 clicks and shot 4 inches low, (should have never been 4 inches high in the first place ) Should have move bullet inpact down 3 inches instead it went 8 inches total , I have had this happen on several occasions over the years. I have always believed that anytime you move a scope adjustment sooner or later you will have trouble. I have had this happen on all my scopes at one time or another all makes. I have another rifle 6.5 x 284 with a Zeiss 6.5 x 20 Z-1000 that never varies except for windage . I have shot them side by side and sometimes when you click to the yardage with the NF it might move to your yardage and might NOT ! Now I know human error has a huge factor at anything past 500 yds as well as the wind but this has happened to many times to be anything but a scope problem , and its always a elevation problem. If you don't shoot a lot , and at several yardages you will probably never see this problem. This is why I want the NF Velocity reticle....
